M-Spike down a half a point!

After seeing my M-spike on the rise for 6 months I was ecstatic to find out that it has dropped to 2.4 in just over 6 weeks (was 2.9). I am starting to think that coffee accelerates myeloma! I gave up coffee for lent, so in between blood tests I didn't have one drop of coffee.

Also, my IgG is at 3100, which is consistent with my last test. I haven't gotten the full list of results, but the numbers that Dr. J seems to always focus on seem to be coming back more on the positive side; which I guess is considered more on the negative side in terms of disease management :)

More Blood Results on the way...yipee!

Heads up…a few more data points on the way. I had some blood work done Tuesday (4/14) just 6 weeks after my last report. Dr. J didn’t want to wait the standard three months to get some new numbers and nor did the engineer in me. The more data, the more I get to play around analyzing numbers.

I heart numbers for those who don’t know me. My favorite is 4, and 4444 is a close second. For the record, I don’t want my m-protein to go to 4 and IgG go to 4,444….although it would make me smile, four a minute.

I'll post the results as soon as I know them...hopefully by Friday.
